Format: Hardcover
Many years ago, Jacques Cousteau produced a series of 20 volume under the overall heading "The Ocean World of Jacques Cousteau." That series were so popular they were published and re-published in various editions by different publishers around the world. Whilst my own set may be complete, it is, nevertheless, made up from two separate editions published in Canada and the USA in 1975. That series of books is so important to me that I always carry a note in my wallet about which volumes I require to make up a complete set from either edition.
This book, however, brings together all those 20 volumes into a single book with all the information and photographs completely updated. I well remember where I first saw the book and immediately snapped it up. It was in the airport concourse at Reykjavik when I was in between flights from London to Halifax, Nova Scotia. It was the last copy they had and, at the price I paid, I thought I was going to be arrested by the Icelandic Police for theft!
Over a period of time - and in between other books, I have actually read this huge tome. And it is huge. Measuring 34 x 26cm (13¼ x 10 in), it contains 435 pages of information about every aspect of the Ocean World. If you want to know what made Jacques Cousteau an international name, if you want to know what it is your parents keep going on about whenever they say "I remember when Jacques Cousteau first came on the television and we saw.....", If you want to know what made the late, great Jacques Yves Cousteau Tick - then this is the only book you will even need to buy.
Amazing photographs, incredible information and, as I say, 435 pages on just about every aspect of the Ocean World. For most people, a book of this calibre would be their life's work, but of course, Cousteau moved on to other projects.
5 Stars are not enough for this outstanding work.

First, a disclaimer of sorts: I love the ocean. I love the smell of it, the sound of it, the romance of it, and the amazing inhabitants that reside in it. I am an aquarium nut and love skin diving.
Now, to the book: Ocean World is an appropriate name for this book. This planet should have been called Sea instead of Earth, since the majority of the planet is ocean. Jacques Cousteau describes this world in an engrossing, almost poetic fashion. The color photographs are wonderful. You will learn much about the endlessly fascinating realm of the sea.

I loved this book! It told me many new things about the underwater life (which I know tons about). It also challenged me to do a lot more thinking while I read. And wow! its by the SCUBA man himself, Jacques Cousteau!

This is a beautifully written book that conveys the beauty plus knowledge of all forms of ocean life, not just the prettiest or largest organisms. Easy for even the layman to read and understand.
